Repeated Everyday, - 2012
Once my art college tutor told me that when you made a photographic slide, it should always look like a jewel; an intense burst of colour. I took this advice a step further and aim to make all my work applying the same theory. A little jewel: Something that you are inclined to investigate, move around, explore, are intrigued by, glows, is alluring.
Repeated Everyday is sited within a 1/12-scale antique Edwardian dolls house. The house was built by my parents and given to me twenty-two years ago on Christmas Day. I have played with it, loved it and intended at some point to decorate and furnish it throughout. With an urge to develop my Chamber installation work on various scales, I wanted to give the house a new identity. Gazing into a different world, we can forget momentarily, the clamour of everyday life.
I often take objects associated with play of function or movement and turn them into statuesque/still or semi monumental thing/forms of beauty. Something playful, sinister, surprising?
